Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

We have an Encon Corinthian 3 speed ceiling fan with triple light. The switch for the fan no longer changes the speed. Is it possible to get another switch and how much would it cost? We tried to get one locally but could not get it to work. We were told to contact the manufacturer. Thank you for your consideration. Carol

Hi!!\015\012
\015\012IF YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THE PULL DOWN CHAIN SWITCH, YOU CAN GET A REPLACEMENT AT ANY LIGHTING STORE, ACE HARDWARE, HOMEDEPOT, ETC. (CALL FIRST) FOR LESS THAN $5. I SUGGEST TO TAKE THE OLD SWITCH TO GET AN EXACT REPLACEMENT. I TAKE IT THAT YOU KNOW HOW TO GET IT OFF AND ON, USING A PIECE OF MASKING TAPE LABEL THE WIRES OR TAKE A PICTURE, TO AVOID MIXING UP THE WIRES LATER. \015\012
\015\012GOOD LUCK!!

I have dimmer switch controlled ceiling fan. What happens is the dimmer switch seems to works for a few weeks. Then it doesn't behave like a dimmer, but only as a switch - meaning that the fan gets on only at the maximum position of the dimmer. If dimmer is even slightly lowered from the maximum position, the fan gets off. This happened to a previous dimmer also and I have changed to a new one - but still same problem. What could be the cause?


It is better to switch over to the stepped switch type dimmer as the potentiometer( the control ) in these types wear off very easily.\012So when the carbon track loses contact the varation of the resistance to feed the SCR does not happen but ... Air Conditioners

I have a Duo-Therm Penguin model#610115405 that cools and the fan changes speed(slower) when the room gets cooled and the compressor kicks out, but the fan will not shut down.I have the same unit fwd in my RV that works fine. I tried switching the thermostat,ptcr relay and the capacitor that is below the ptcr. Any other suggestions ? Dont see anything that else that I can easily switch to check.Still not shutting down?

I don't know what model my fan is, but it's only 3 years old and suddenly two days ago the light and fan quit working. We replaced the light switch on the wall-nothing. Took apart whatwe could of the fan to look at the wiring-all intact. We then replaced the battery in the remote and it instantly worked fine again. After putting it all back together it stayed lit with the fan working for about two hours at which time I turned it off using the wall switch. I immediately tried turning it back on a


That may be, because you were using the Remote Control to operate it, but then turned off the wall switch instead of turning it off using the Remote Control.Turn the wall switch back On and try to get the Remote Control to take back over ... Hampton Bay Air Conditioners

Installed the Altura 56" fan (56ATR), worked fine at all speed until we put on the light. Everything worked fine for about 10 minutes, then the fan stopped working, but the light stayed on. Kept trying to get the fan to start at any speed but no luck. Seems as though something may have burned out after we installed the light.


Both the fan and light have a common connection .. usually all the white wires are connected at one wire nut .. check to see if the fan wire has pulled out of the wire nut ... remove the wire nut and re-tighten it .. pull on each wire to make sure ea ... Air Conditioners

This is a heating and cooling through the wall heat pump. It works normally when heating is selected - the heat pump runs and both speeds of the fan blow warm air. But nothing runs when cooling is selected. In other words the unit works normally when "High Heat" or "Low Heat" is selected but nothing runs when "High Cool", "Low Cool" or "Fan Only" is selected. The position of the Fan Cycle Switch has no effect - behavior of the unit is the same in both positions of the Fan Cycle Switch.

Have a whole house fan which has a 2 speed motor. Stopped working. I know there is power to the fan. checked with a voltmeter. Have taken off the 2 speed switch and connected the two black wires together, did not work. connected the two black wires and a red wire together, did not work. Is there a way to test the motor?

Fan Hello, my ac unit blower on the inside is working fine but, the outside fan isn't. i just bought a new relay switch due to that what it was a few years back. but, it's not working the outside fan. so, my question could it be another relay switch? or the compressor? Thanks


Hi wild 36.\015\012I think the problem may be a bad run capacitor. If the outside unit is humming with no action, that may be it.\015\012\015\012This could also cause the outside unit circuit breaker to trip.\015\012\015 ... Air Conditioners

My Airworks ceiling fan with remote stopped working. With Room light switch in 'on' position, remote no longer turns light on or controls fan speeds. Changed 9-volt battery but did not make a difference. In the compartment where 9-volt battery sits there is a small switch that has 4 tiny switches. Are these for any particular function of the ceiling fan? If it was only the bulb that needs replacement why should not the remote control the fan operation? Can you help or make suggestions to try?

Hi, I have an 1985 Chelsea attic fan. The motor is still working fine, and it is turning the main bolt on which the fan blades are hung. This main bolt turns very fast, at the speed of the motor. The fan blades start slowly, and they used to accelerate to full speed, but now they just stay at a slow speed. What could be the problem? Thanks, Joe


It is the fan clutch. Like in a truck with a full time fan, it has a clutch that accelerates the fan as it is needed. Your clutch on the fan has probably burned out. ... Air Conditioners

Our Furnace doesnt seem to be working correct. We an: Air Pro BGM075128 and is Natural Gas. It will turn on when we turn up the thermostat.. but we never get any heat through the vents. There is a switch on the side that is "on" and one that is "fan". If we turn on the "fan" only cold air gets blown through. It looks like this is for cool air. So, if we leave the fan off and the "on" swith on, we get the furnace firing up, but no heat ever comes through the vents. I tested out the thermo

I have two Harbor Breeze Triton (Item #233576) ceiling fans purchased approximately 3 years ago. Neither have pulls, so the only way I can change the fan speed or dim the light is with the remote (the light can be shut on or off with a light switch, and I can also turn the fan off completely, if I want). A few weeks ago, one of the remotes stopped working...replaced the battery, etc., and nothing worked. I took the remote from the lesser used fan, changed the dips, and use it for that fan

AC, Fan-Auto, Fan-On... nothing works. the request from the Thermostat doesn't engage anything. Thermostat Dispay works. How do I know if it is getting the 24volts from the relay? I presume the display wouldn't work if the 24v from relay wasn't there. I have two separate systems in the house. So therefore, I pulled the thermostat off the base and tried it on the faulty system. No luck. Still same issue. Perhaps it's the Honeywell base itself? what electronics are in there that could fail? How ca
